I want to transfer files in Recovery Mode https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201314. I opened Terminal in Recovery Mode and tried to copy files to external hard drive. I use this code
// I used cd .. to get to the topmost folder
cd Volumes // takes me to volumes
cd OS\ X\ Base\ System
The problem is that this creates a loop. Upon cd-ing to OS\ X\ Base\ System it takes me back to the start, namely the
/ folder that contains
Volumes. I want to copy the whole Document directory and Desktop directory. What I am doing wrong?
When I first enter the Terminal, I am in
private/var/root/Library, the system created a var folder when figuring out something is missing I guess.
